Eat Less, Move More to Lose Weight…..It’s NOT that easy!

Does this sound like you?

*You have an increased appetite and cravings?

*You have a hard time recovering after exercise?

*You’re irritable and have mood disorders?

*You’re gaining weight or reaching a weight loss plateau.
*You’re always hungry despite having a satisfactory meal?
*You have increased blood pressure?

These are symptom of Leptin Resistance!

Leptin, the “satiety hormone,” is a hormone made by fat cells which regulates the amount of fat stored in the body. It does this by adjusting both the sensation of hunger, and adjusting energy expenditures.

It is one of the most important hormones made exclusively by fat cells.

When a person overeats and gains weight, there will be an increase in body fat which would lead to an increase in the production of the hormone leptin. The leptin secreted will be signaled to the brain that there are adequate fat stores. The brain will then stimulate the metabolic processes that results in appetite suppression, weight loss, reduction in hunger, increased satiety with eating, increase resting metabolism, increase in lipolysis (fat breakdown) and stimulate fat burning, allowing the person to restore back to the normal body weight. This process of internal self-correction is called “homeostasis” and it stabilizes the body’s internal state.

When there is an increase in body fat, there is also an increase in the levels of leptin in the blood. For people who are overweight, leptin is not doing its job of reducing appetite and stimulating fat burning. When the functions of leptin are blocked, it results in a state called LEPTIN RESISTANCE.

We will, through diet and meal planning, restore your hormonal balance so your body functions like it should.

Leptin was only discovered in 1994 and the reason why much of the advice you’ve been given about diet and exercise is WRONG!

Don’t worry, We can make it right.
